So I was running bitcoind through an SSH screen on ubuntu 11.04.

The connection terminates randomly after long periods of inactivity.

Before I disconnected once, I had a running ./bitcoind screen open...

Now when I re-connect I cannot seem to find it, but bitcoind is still running.

How do I go about properly closing bitcoind without corrupting the blockchain or worse?

If you have RPC enabled, ssh to the box, then write: /full/path/to/bitcoind stop

(try ‘bitcoind help’ for full help.)

I know you fixed it, but if it was run using screen, when you reconnect you can also use:

% screen -ls

To list all of your screen sessions.  It will then give you the name of the session to reattach it.
